Misfits Market Boxes No. 11, 12 and 13

Happy Wednesday! It's been a while since I've shared my Misfits Market box contents, but I am still receiving my weekly orders of produce. I just took an unplanned break from some of my blogging due to some sickness going around our house and I just didn't feel like blogging much and only did my design team commitments for the papercrafts challenge blogs I am a member of.

If you are new to my blog or if you're not familiar with Misfits Market, I am sharing this from their site as they explain it best:

"It's a subscription box of sometimes funny-looking, always delicious produce, designed to break the cycle of food waste. Think of us like an online grocery store, except one that specializes in rescuing food that is unnecessarily thrown away. We source high-quality organic produce that has a few quirks—onions that are too small, potatoes that are shaped like your favorite celebrity, and carrots that fell in love and got twisted together. It may sound like a joke, but billions of pounds of this fresh and delicious food is tossed each year because grocery stores only want "perfect" foods on their shelves. We step in and buy this food from hundreds of farms across the country and bring them to your doorstep, saving you money and helping you save the world." 

Misfits Market does give every subscriber a discount code to share with their friends for 25% off their first box. If you would like to try this service, you can use this code: COOKWME-TT0TPG.
While this post is in no way sponsored by Misfits Market, I too would receive a 25% discount off of a future box when someone is taking advantage of this code.

Just a note, they do not yet deliver to all States, you can take a look here to see if your state is one of them.

To  safe time and keep the post from getting too long, I will just leave a short review for each box.

Box No. 11

Box No. 11 Contents:

1 Bundle of Carrots
4 White Onions
4 Yellow Onions
5 Roma Tomatoes
2 English Cucumbers
4 Green Bell Peppers
2 Mango
4 Zucchini
1 Romanesco Cauliflower
6 Apples
6 Limes
4 Red Potatoes
1 Bundle of  Radishes
2 Small Lettuce Heads
Red Grapes
1 Box of Shishito Peppers

Everything I received was picked by me, but I do not get to choose how much of each. It's been while since I received this box and if I remember correctly, the only thing that ended up in the trash was one english cucumber :-(  Honestly I should not have chosen any cucumbers because during this time I also had a ton of cucumbers from my garden and I just didn't get the chance to use it all. (I need to learn how to pickle them!!) I was very impressed with this box!!

Box No. 12

Box No. 12 Contents:

2 Bok Choy
1 Lettuce Head
2 Small Butter Lettuce Head
1 Celery Stalk
6 Plums
4 Nectarines (only 2 pictured)
8 Red Potatoes
4 Red Bell Peppers
6 Apples (only 5 pictured)
8 Zucchini
4 Peaches (not pictured)
1 Eggplant (not pictured)
1 Mini Watermelon
2 Garlic

I received everything as selected through customization. This was the week my box arrived a day late (Thursday instead of Wednesday).
There were several items that arrived spoilt/moldy - Eggplant, all Peaches, 2 Nectarines, 1 Apple.
They weren't included in the photo as I separated them from the rest to take a photo for costumer support. I did receive a partial refund.

Box No. 13

2 Mango
1 Bundle of  Broccoli Stems
1 Bundle of Cilantro
4 Apples
2 Zucchini
2 Summer Squash
2 Lettuce Heads (not sure what kind)
1 Romaine Lettuce Head
4 Peaches
1 Bundle of Rainbow Carrots
8 Yellow Potatoes
8 Red Potatoes

About half of the items here I did not select and all of my "add on's" (I selected 3 extras) were missing. After taking to costumer support, they discovered I was sent the wrong box. I was refunded for the missing items as well as received a partial refund for what I paid for the box. I did not request any refund for the box, just the missing items, but they offered the extra discount because I was sent the wrong box.
Also, (hard to see in the photo) but the Romaine Lettuce was spoilt and had to be thrown out. Needless to say this box was a bit of a disappointment especially knowing I had selected other items that I had hoped to receive. I was still able to use these products (minus the rotten lettuce head and probably won't use the cilantro.)

I am still continuing with my Misfits Market subscription, even though my last two boxes weren't exactly perfect but I really like the service and convenience. Hopefully today's delivery will be one with no issues :)

We just got our latest box in today and I honestly am not sure what we'll do with quite so many potatoes but other than that I am quite excited to use up and try a few new things we selected. I am really enjoying getting to pick a bit of what comes each week as we have little to no waste that way.

I think they are having growing pains - they actually sent me two of the same box. Didn't get charged and they let me give the extra box to a neighbor.

Glad they were able to help you with the wrong box issue!

I ordered one after I read one of your previous reviews. Loved my first box, and I'm still excited about it. This week's is a week late though, so I'm highly concerned about produce going bad. They are saying they changed warehouses and that's why, so I'm holding out hope that this won't be a pattern.
